Printed specimens
All our mechanical tests are performed on printed specimens. Mechanical properties of printed parts are tested in various build orientations to give users insights on the influence of the print process to the expected material performance.

Desktop Printers
Our inhouse test lab has a selection of desktop machines commonly used in the FFF printer market. Our materials are optimized to work on a large variety of printers. Desktop 3D printers are also used to print the specimens for our mechanical test to optimally represent the results that users will achieve when working with our materials.

Standard Parameters
We use standard slicing software to create tool paths for printing specimens. The parameters are chosen to represent standard print settings often used in default print profiles.

Slicing parameters used for printing specimens:

Layer height 0.2 mm
Top/ Bottom layers 0,8 mm/ 4 Layers
Shell/ outlines 0,8 mm/ 2 Lines
Infill pattern Rectilinear/  Lines 45/ -45° angle
Infill density 100 %
Printing speed 40 mm/s

ISO Standards
All tests are performed according to ISO standards commonly used in the industry for determining the properties of plastics.

Some examples:

Mechanical Properties:
Tensile performance according to ISO 527
Impact performance according to Charpy and IZOD ISO 179, ISO 180
Flexural performance according to ISO 178

Thermal Properties:
Heat deflection Temperature at 0,45 MPa and 1,8 MPa according to ISO 75-2
Tg, Tc, and Tm according to ISO 11357
MVR according to ISO 1133
